The Portal Server software requires the following stack components:
Sun Java System Directory Server 5.2 P4
Sun Java System Access Manager 7 installed in legacy mode.
Portal Server requires Access Manager and Directory Server and a web container for its install and configuration. If you are performing a fresh install, Access Manager and Directory Server do not have to be pre-installed. Access Manager, Directory Server and Portal Server can all be installed at the same time. If you have Access Manager and Directory Server installed already, point the portal install and configuration to the existing Directory Server and Access Manager servers.
Apply the Access Manger 7.0 Patch 1 before the Portal Server Installation. For all web containers, including, BEA WebLogic or IBM WebSphere, apply the patch before installing Portal Server software. The patch number depends on the operating system.
For Sparc, use patch 120954-01
For Linux, use 120956-01
For x86, use 120955-01
Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP5 or Sun Java System Application Server 8.1 (including the patches).
The sun-soarsdk rpm (registry server SDK rpm) is not re-locatable; so, do not choose non-default locations for registry on Linux.
Sun Java System Portal Server 7 software does not support Sun Java System Access Manager 7 installed in realm mode. Access Manager must be installed in legacy mode before installing Portal Server 7 software.
For detailed instructions for installing the stack components, see the Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Reference.
